Overlooking Squero San Trovaso, one of the last remaining gondola builders left in Venice, this conveniently located Dorsoduro apartment offers easy access to the many excellent museums, galleries and churches of Venice but a fraction of the crowds you'll encounter in San Marco. However, when you want to explore further afield, you'll find the nearest vaporetto stop 100m away, while the padlock-covered Ponte dell'Accademia is just five minutes on foot. The historic wood and metal bridge is your gateway to the San Marco district's many iconic sights. The interior is a triumph of form and function, with stylish contemporary furnishings sitting in an open living space beneath an original exposed beam ceiling. Two large windows ensure plenty of natural light and views over the terracotta-tiled roofs of the Dorsoduro neighbourhood. After a day exploring the city, return home for a well-deserved night's sleep on the mezzanine level.

    Guests should note the lack of headroom on the mezzanine level

    The apartment is accessible via stairs only, and there are steps within the home, so it's unlikely to be suitable for guests with more limited mobility

About Dorsoduro

Located just south of Rialto, Dorsoduro is a large and culturally rich quarter. The majority of Ca' Foscari (the main university in the city) is in this area, so the people here skew young and trendy. It’s one of Venice’s best spots for nightlife, with crowds gathering in squares deep into the summer evenings.
